Inward Retreat

A valuable introspective experience.

(Only available in-person)

Inward Retreat is a half day self awareness immersion designed to attune you to your mind and body which is where life satisfaction and inner peace is experienced.

Throughout the retreat you will be guided through a series of helpful teachings and mindbody practices that will positively shape how you function and relate in everyday life. We will be particularly focussing on improving how you manage unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, urges and actions as well as how to support the challenging emotions that accompany them.

Inward Retreat is presented in four sessions;
Awareness, Acceptance, Compassion and Wisdom.
Each session will include related teachings and practices with music and conclude with a period of reflection and rest.

As this is an introspective retreat there will be no interaction between fellow retreaters however you are welcome to communicate with me at any time. Moving through the retreat with ‘group silence’ will enable you to minimise distraction and maintain continuous mindbody connection – a highly valuable practice in itself.

Inward Retreat is a ‘recalibration of Self’; you will learn healthier ways to manage your problems and pains and wiser ways of being in relationship with yourself and others. It’s a great stand alone option to working through the issues you’re currently facing or as a complement to private sessions.

Inward Retreat is open to everyone and is limited to 12 people so be quick to secure your spot.
